Here on the frontier, There are falling leaves, Although my neighbors are all barbarions…And you? You are a thousand miles away. There are always two cups on my table.

Best Birthday Gift For Middle Class And White (me)

Anything from Anthropologie. It is the middle class woman’s cheap imitation of a French thrift store.

I especially like the authentic rust covered lawn furniture holding handcrafted soaps and lots of “whatnot”.   I want a whatnot now!  I totally could sell Anthropologie my lawn furniture for their store displays.                   

Tres chic! Can they pick it up before bulk trash gets here???                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             

A bottle of single-malt scotch. Because I am too old for beer, it gives me gas.  I’m too snobby for cheap alcohol and I want to have something in the house that my old man won’t snicker at.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     

Organic Bath products made by someone named Holly. Because Holly would make the best most pricey organic stuff. Like soaps with tiny bits of grass and twigs. I love that. Holly Organics would tie a raffia bow around all her mass-produced …organics.  A charity associated with Holly Organics would be an added bonus.    See what you can do.                                                                                                                                    Maybe just a pint of  Ben and Jerry’s instead.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      

  • A copy of the DVD White Chicks. Because it will get this white chick laughing seeing the Coen Brothers  doing dead on imitations of  white girls.
  • Teva shoes. Well made, imported from the middle east and so avant-garde.   They are the go to shoe for yoga class, bootcamp and the weekly psychiatric session.    One wants to make the right impression.

There that should get you started.

Get moving kids my birthday is Tuesday.

Oh and please no more Godiva chocolate (my relative’s default gift setting) or spa treatments (I work in a spa remember?)

This is gmom,

peace out.

Happy Birthday to me!

Join Me In Wishing Young Rose Happy Birthday!

One of the highlights of my life which I just don’t get enough of (being caught up as I am with baby boy Hoo and those wheels that need grease around here) is young lady Rose.

Just 20.

Having a birthday soon.

Caught her getting her lunch together this morning.

A nasty toaster biscuit with butter and jam.

A sandwich with a protein patty…okay.

Children don’t get much better then this little gal.

Off to college and then work.

Girl is all right.

Join me in wishing young Rose an early happy birthday.

Love you sweetpea.

Like I used to sing to you when you fit in my lap.

“Sometimes in the morning,

when shadows are deep,

I lie here beside you,

just watching you sleep.

And sometimes I wonder,

What you’re dreaming of,

My cup runneth over with love.”

This is gmom wishing all the Wper’s out there a safe and happy superbowl weekend.

Go Packers!
